Donwill "Love Junkie" (Wallpaper LIVE Remix)

Imagine you’re chatting up a head-to-toe hottie at a show. She’s a bit bored but not enough to flee the scene, so you stay the course. You talk about your dreams, she’s interested, she admires your passion, she buys you a drink, she says “cool” when you ask for her number. Feeling yourself you decide to ditch the playbook and invite her over for a dip in the pool (you’ll have to imagine actually having a pool too). The next day, she’s at your door with a bikini that won’t quit, a case of beer, food to bbq, and a posse of equally foxy friends who came to play water volleyball!

Put yourself in that place. Are you there?

What you’re feeling is 10,000 times better than watching this video, but the scenarios are similar: a great song gets better with a brand new outfit and a little help from some friends. – yourstru.ly

Wallpaper. @ The Independent May 7

Wallpaper
with/ OONA, DJ Morale
The Independent
Fri, May 7, 2010
Doors: 8:30 PM / Show: 9:00 PM
$15

Boxed in by layers of percussive funk, dark synthesizer blurt and crushing bass, Eric Frederic lost himself inside of Ricky Reed, the character he’d long ago conceived as Wallpaper.’s frontman. He gave in to Ricky’s rampant narcissism, love for party and supreme indifference, and as a result, discovered the guiding duality behind Doodoo Face, the album: There’s sadness inside all that celebration. A little madness too.

But one needn’t know any of this to “get” Wallpaper. Just as it thrives under scrutiny, Doodoo Face bangs at face value, and the record’s title is a reference to that: a contorted expression inspired by discovering something unbelievably funky. From the cavernous thump and honking sax of opener “Indecent” to the warped hyphy of “ddd” to “Doodoo Face” itself, this is dark, nasty, load-bearing booty funk of the Oakland house party variety. It’s the part of Wallpaper. that Frederic and his flashier alter ego almost see eye-to-eye on. Is it satire? Sincerity? Something in between? Doodoo Face invites you to decide. – theindependentsf.com

Track of the Day: Donwill & Wallpaper.'s "Love Junkie"

If you’re waiting for the right season to crush out on someone, pop culture likes to lead young hearts into spring with songs fit for falling in love. Brooklyn’s Donwill and SF’s Wallpaper. and the Park got down for the remix of “Love Junkie.” The lyrics are kinda funny–about being addicted to someone you haven’t met–but hey, I guess in the Internet age anything can happen.

You can hear the original track on Donwill’s MySpace. Personally, I prefer the new remix, though, which has a high pop energy that puts you back in that junior high crush junkie frame of mind. (Plus, the new version, recorded locally at Different Fur Studios, has more of a King of Pop sound–which isn’t surprising, given Wallpaper.’s obsession with all things Michael Jackson.)

In other Wallpaper. news, the duo is taking its multi-media extravaganza to a bigger stage the next time they play in SF. Look for a show on Friday, May 7, at the Independent. If you want to see the group’s songwriting mastermind a little sooner, Eric Frederic will be performing with the Park, OG Bay Area funk and soul man Darondo, and lots of other guests at the Park’s live mixtape series at La Peña Cultural Center in Berkeley this Friday, April 3.

BiancaRocksOut. Getting My Glitter Back SXSW10 Edition

BiancaRocksOut: Getting my Glitter Back SXSW10 Edition

The week started with getting off the plane and running to the tumblr party… from there, everything was a crazy awesome blur.  Lindsay welcomed me and giant pale Dutch Justin made a great partner in crime.

I love SXSW because most of my friends are in the same place at the same time (both internet and music) and I run around and adventure with them.

There were some other bands I caught and other people I partied with, and didn’t get video of because my phone and camera were dead half the time.  But I still love you guys.

Music: Wallpaper- I Got Soul, I’m So Wasted (appropriate for my SXSW on so many levels)

Thanks so much Bianca : )
